The least-known major writer in America?

I recently posted Dennis Lehane's take on Daniel Woodrell's newest novel:
"Woodrell is the least-known major writer in the country right now. I don't even know what this novel's about, but I'm going to buy it the day it's published."
I knew nothing of Woodrell before reading Lehane's comment but knew I had to find out more. Fortunately, John Williams of The Independent (UK) trekked to Woodrell's hometown for a visit. Click here for the insightful article about Woodrell and his work that emerged from that interview.

Winter's Bone is due for release in the U.S. later this summer.
